1. Use keywords that will drive genuine traffic.
Having a lot of traffic but no genuinely interested audience is of no use. to make your content perform better you must have a true audience for your content who will be benefited after reading your content.
For this you need to understand what keywords your audience uses the most on the search boards and then, use these keywords in your content so that it may reach the right audience who are looking for content like yours.
Know the intent of your readers and then you will find the right keywords for your content. These are three main types of search intent they are Navigational, Informational and Transactional.
The Navigational one is the one to reach a particular site like "blogging digital blog", "Facebook", "Titan watches store", "Amazon website". Here the user knows what he wants and just searches to reach a particular site.
The Informational intent search is the one where the reader is willing to gain information about a certain topic. Here the searcher doesn't know about a particular website and just types the words he wants to know in detail. Example- "house decoration ideas", "horror novels", "fashion guide".
The third, Transactional search intent is the one like- "best fashion tags for Instagram", "subscribe to Danik Bhaskar daily news". Here, the intent is to perform an activity related to the web only. The searchers are ready to perform an action. The keywords used by them is a detailed long-tail one. They are ready to either buy or take any web action from their web-mediated activity
NOTE- Target the right audience by placing the right keyword and fulfil the search intent by your audience.
